With Strikeforce Challengers 20, UFC 139: Shogun v. Hendo and Fedor/Monson all taking place this weekend Bellator 58 had an uphill climb to stand out.  Was it better than UFC 139?  I dont’ think so but I’d definitely say it was a pretty good card with some great stories going on like Michael Chandler (above photo) taking out Bellator’s Lightweight ace Eddie Alvarez to take the Lightweight title, Hector Lombard adding another body to his trail of victims in his 20-fight win streak, Marlon Sandro scoring a rare submission win and Jessica Aguilar getting revenge on the person who beat her in her first MMA fight Lisa Ellis-WardClick here for a full recap.  Check out these videos of Lombard’s TKO win over Trevor Prangley followed by the full match between Chandler and Alvarez.

Wow!  That was awesome.  At UFC 139 Dan “Hendo” Henderson defeated Mauricio “Shogun” Rua by unanimous decision in what many are now calling the “greatest MMA fight of all time.”  Although not the first non-title 5-Round UFC Main Event, it was the first to actually go the full five rounds.  An amazing five rounds of back and forth action which saw “Hendo” dominate the first few frames only to have “Shogun” finish the fight on top.
